The date of Feb. 29 only rolls around once every four years and that date made for a great day to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Kathleen Kelley’s literature class at Meeker High School presented three Seuss stories to about 80 children and their parents at Meeker Elementary School. All enjoyed the skits of ‘Green Eggs and Ham,’ ‘Yertle the Turtle’ and ‘The Lorax.’ March 2 was Dr. Seuss’s (Theodore Geisel) actual birthday, and MES Principal Kathy Collins and her dog, Cricket, read Seuss stories to students throughout the day.
More than 25 Meeker Elementary School kids, parents, family members and even pets showed up Saturday to run/walk a 5K, as part of MES teacher Vicky Tate’s physical education class and 100 Mile Club program.
MEEKER I There are a number of activities in the next week involving students from Meeker High School and Meeker Elementary School.
